This is a must have in any pictures section.

Currently my Colt Delta Elite is off getting tuned up but hkssr20det was kind enough to send me a few pictures of it. It is only part way done though and will be getting some new parts like hammer, grip safety etc.

Loving the delta Rom. What brand of hammer is that? Also how is the fitment, I'm thinking about getting a PDI oval or KM ring hammer.

WE 1911









TM 1911 (soon to be PGC delta elite)

nice 1911's. how does that WE 1911 perform? I heard they have leaky mag problems. Did you sand the paint off the slide and frame or is that some aftermarket frame and slide set?

No leaky mag problems. Only problems I had when I first got it was the bad gas consumption. I fixed that with the teflon tape mod though. Works great now. Frame and slide were just stripped and sanded then polished. Definitely not an aftermarket kit.

Krame - It is a PDI commander race hammer I believe. It is just a temp as I decided to go the beavertail and and ring hammer route.

Krame - Rom is right, it is the just released Limited Edition Race hammer. They also have the "egg-hole" style Race Hammer as well. The good thing about them is that they will clear the Government style grip safety. Consider one of them for your Delta. The KM Ring Hammers that will clear the stock grip safety are sold out, and the PDI Hi Capa NeXT hammer will not clear it.

PGC Delta Elite (TM) - usually has a compensator



PGC Colt M1911A1 (TM)





PGC Springfield Operator (WA)





Three Delta Elites - TM (mine), TM (Romulus) and WA (mine)

Ok, thanks. Is this the egg-hole hammer you're talking about. http://www.dentrinityshop.com/pr_details.jsp?pid=12183

Here is the Race Spec one. It also shows the little change in design that will help with cycling. I honestly don't know if that one will work, but the Race Spec Commander works well.

hkssr20det, did WA stop producing the LAPD SWAT edition Kimber? I really, really want one, but can't find it anywhere. Crying or Very sad Everyone that still has it listed on their site, says it's out of stock....

It depends on what series you are talking about. The SCW2 guns are way sold out. But WA has just released the gun in their "Carbon Black" finish in SCW3. I personally dislike SCW3 and won't buy them, but if you are willing to run 134A they are still high quality guns. I would look for a SCW3 LAPD Swat Custom II in Carbon Black or you are going to need to find a used example.

you mean I can't use propane with an SCW3? I did with my SCW2 with good results.

I wouldn't run propane through a SCW3 gun. The sear system is much cheaper and the firing pin design is more prone to "catching" and causing light strikes.

My WE Tech M1911 that will be getting many more parts over the next few months, depending on how fast I can get a new job and some extra cash, to look like the "Silverballers" from the Hitman games. I know it needs a little more work to be nice and shiney, but give me time... I've only had this thing for two weeks.

"Light striking" is when the hammer mechanism doesn't hit the valve on the mag hard enough to open it.

In other words the strike is to light.

Exactly, the WA either doesn't blowback or the slide action is very weak and doesn't load a new shot. It is a drag and makes you want to throw your $600+ gun at a wall, well that is what it make me want to do.

I thought that you're expert was more in the $800+ range when you sold it.

Still, it adds up to the same thing.

Have you heard anymore about the new magna guns, like the one "reviewed" on the PDI website?

Captain Plastic thinks they won't even make it out of Japan. I want one badly, but am way short on cash for one. They should be released in late December.

Oh yeah, these showed up today:

Wow. Those are beautiful customs hkssr20det.

(My stock response to all of hkssr20dets posts)

It will be fun to see what you can do with them when you get to the stage where you start to tweak them and dress them up.
